Apple Music is up to 60 million subscribers

Apple Music now has 60 million users, including both paying subscribers and listeners on free trials. Apple exec Eddy Cue gave the update in an interview with French website Numerama. “In the Apple ecosystem, Apple Music is the number one streaming service,” he told that publication.

The previous Apple figures in its January earnings call pegged the streaming service as 50 million paying listeners. In April, the Wall Street Journal published a report claiming that Apple Music had more subscribers in the United States than Spotify. The competitor streaming platform has a larger international footprint and its audience includes millions of free listeners.
